Are Americans Really Free?

"Regard as free not those whose status makes them outwardly free, but those who are free in their character and conduct. For we should not call men in authority truly free when they are wicked or dissolute, since they are slaves to worldly passions. Freedom and happiness of soul consist in genuine purity and detachment from transitory things."

St. Antony the Great.

NATO Bombing Of Serbia 10 Years Ago, Code Name: "Merciful Angel"

What did these Orthodox people do to bring the wrath of the West against them and what sick group of people would call an unwarranted 78 day bombing siege of innocent civilians, "Merciful Angel"?  I am ashamed to be an American for we are a nation of war mongers, who go about in the name of God destroying, maiming, torturing and lying.  We Christians mourn over the abortion holocaust but the real holocaust are the heresies that opened the door for abortion to become a legal right in this nation.  Abortion, war mongering and materialism are the consequences of a false belief system and this American nation was built on a foundation of false beliefs and heresy. When Christ cast demons into the wilderness, they were sent to this continent where they patiently waited for men to come who would embrace their strategies of war against the apple of God's eye, the Orthodox people.   

For every action of man, there is a reaction of God and America will reap what it sows and we will have to pay for every unjust, immoral and violent act that we have inflicted upon the nations of this world.  We are a false light to the nations, a wolf in sheep's clothing, spreading disease, famine and suffering to every corner of the world and our actions have absolutely nothing to do with righteousness and absolutely everything to do with wickedness.  Our father is Satan and America is the apple of his eye.  Oh Lord Jesus Christ, come quickly and have mercy on us.

No Weapon Formed Aganist You Shall Prosper

Abba John the Dwarf said, "If a king wanted to take possession of his enemy's city, he would begin by cutting off the water and the food and so his enemies, dying of hunger, would submit to him. It is the same with the passions of the flesh; if a man goes about fasting and hungry the enemies of his soul grow weak." 

The Sayings of the Desert Fathers

Our enemy has accomplished the amazing feat of poisoning and adulterating the food and water supply of the entire world.  Yet, all things work together for good to those who love God...and our King is faithful to use the prowess of accomplished swordsmen (demons) to train us for spiritual battle.

All Is Vainity But This One Thing

"For a man to know God, and to know himself and his proper rank - a knowledge now possessed even by Christians who are thought to be quite unlearned - is a knowledge superior to natural science and astronomy and to all philosophy concerning such matters. Moreover, for our intellect to know its own infirmity, and to seek healing for it, is incomparably greater than to know and search out the magnitude of the stars, the principles of nature, the generation of terrestrial things and the circuits of celestial bodies, their solstices and risings, stations and retrogressions, separations and conjunctions and, in short, all of the multiform relationships which arise from the many different motions in the heavens. For the intellect that recognizes its own infirmity has discovered where to enter in order to find salvation and how to approach the light of knowledge and receive the true wisdom that does not pass away with this present world."

St. Gregory Palamas.

Unidentified Flying Object Or Identified Flying Object?

What are we to make of UFO's?  The mere mention of UFO's brings up images of extraterrestrials and demons evoking confusion and wonder.  Actually, research and development of these flying machines began in Austria and Germany early in the 20th century and development was accelerated during the years of Nazi reign.  Victor Schauberger, one of the great minds of this last century was one of the chief engineers working on the development of flying saucers using technology that few understood in his time or even now and unfortunately he has been left to dwell in obscurity having died a penniless and broken man.  Victor's genius saw in nature a potential for clean, silent and awesome power never before known by man.  He was a man of extraordinary insight and perception into the mysterious workings of nature, water and levitation and he learned of these truths unknown by most even in our day by simply observing natural phenomena in a pristine environment.  The development of his amazing flying machine was cut short by the defeat of Germany and whatever evidence not destroyed by the Nazis was gathered up by Russian and American military.  Our military continued to do secret research and development on these flying machines for many years after the war.  I am of the opinion that this clean, silent and powerful technology was so unusual and advanced compared to our archaic fire breathing combustible engines that it was finally scraped due to the influence of the petroleum, power, aircraft and auto industries.   I also think it was in their best interest to perpetuate the myth of UFO's being associated with demons and extraterrestrials because in doing so, it created a rabbit trail to keep the focus off of technology that would have shaken the foundation of so-called modern society, requiring a rewriting of all textbooks and a retooling of all assembly lines in just about every factory in the world that had anything to do with power and transportation.  Bizarre as my analysis may seem,  the behavior of big industry and our government is consistent with the brokenness of our world while at the same time revealing what life would be like on this planet if mankind wasn't so corrupt.

Centrifugal Force - Godly Fact or Manly Fiction?

Which is natural and thus of God and which is unnatural and thus of man; centrifugal or centripetal actions?  The centrifugal principle is an explosive action projecting matter from an organized state into a disorganized state.  I would propose that this is not a natural condition but is a man induced action which is not consistent with the natural order of the universe.  To prove this theory we need only observe earthly and universal phenomena.  For instance, what occurs when you pull the plug out of the bath tub drain?  The water naturally creates a vortex flowing in a centripetal motion drawing in on itself and creating energy as it flows down the drain.  The forces of a hurricane, a tornado or a typhoon could be described in a similar fashion in that these energies are drawn inward creating a tremendous amount of force and compressed energy displaying a centripetal action.  The galaxies also reveal a centripetal motion in that we can observe matter rotating towards a center point much like a hurricane.  Black holes as well reveal the sheer cosmic power of centripetal action much like water flowing through the drain of a giant cosmic bath tub.

As we consider this phenomena, is there any proof of a centrifugal force occurring in nature apart from man?  Centrifugal forces in as much as I understand them are associated with explosions such as in the combustion engine, atomic fission and incendiary devices with all of these actions producing toxic fallout of varying proportions.  Centrifugal actions do not fit within the natural cycles of life, rejuvenation or regeneration whereas centripetal forces create clean and structured energy fitting splendidly into the natural cycles of life although it should be noted that hurricanes, tornados and typhoons are able to create tremendous energies that contribute to a restructuring of nature, never the less, they are natural forces with no toxic consequences. 

So, why am I talking about centripetal and centrifugal forces in a blog that is devoted to Orthodoxy?   Because Orthodoxy is all about right thinking, right belief, right doctrine and right worship and heresy is all about distorting truth and the conclusion we can draw from this observation is that if it isn't orthodox it's heresy.  There is no in-between existence although the ecumenical movement would prefer that we believe otherwise.  

As I discuss this subject, I need to emphasize that I am not in any stretch of the imagination a scholar or an authority on science, creation, the Bible or Orthodoxy.  I am just a fool with a blog who occasionally enjoys sharing his feeble thoughts as well as posting the wonderful wisdom of our ancient fathers.  So, I will continue to contemplate my mental wanderings.  As we all know, all perspectives on how the universe and the earth began, evolved or came into existence are merely speculations based on observations of nature and the question I have is this, "Why is it that man would even begin to entertain a big bang theory based on the so-called principle of centrifugalism?".  The only 'big bangs' observed in nature are those created by man.  All other observations of nature reveal a centripetal force at work which would indicate that all matter has always been observed to revolve in a circular inward motion moving towards a center point.  This force and corresponding action are undeniable and irrefutable, whereas centrifugal force has no natural occurrence anywhere in the observable universe of inner space or outer space, at least in as much as my feeble mind is able to comprehend.

In saying this, I am not even beginning to address the subject of where matter came from in the first place, although I think it would be appropriate to state that all matter originally generated as vibrational energies emanating from the mind of God and those vibrational energies have been manifest to us as observable matter in a myriad of different shapes, sizes, masses, textures, colors and variations of life form.  

It is also apparent from observing nature that she seeks equilibrium and order so long as life energies are present and as those vibrational energies seemingly fade, living matter begins to break down towards disorder, yet from a disordered and decaying state, this de-energized matter wonderously continues to contribute to the cycles of nature sacrificially contributing it's transmuted and re-energized properties to other life forms.  Thus there is a continual and balanced building up and breaking down process that occurs in nature and in some mysterious manner, the forces of centripetal action contribute to this balanced restructuring of the vibrational energies of nature present within the entire universe.  Again, in observing nature, it would appear that centripetal movements contribute to the cycle of life while centrifugal forces disrupt the cycle of life and thus appear contrary to nature.

What I am proposing in this little dialogue is that all disciplines of science as well as any academic discipline are heretical unless they are founded on an orthodox premise and any belief that deviates from an orthodox premise is really a propagation of the Evil One introduced to mankind as reality which is actually a distraction from what is true and sound doctrine, belief and understanding.  Thus, I would propose that centrifugal force is but one more creation of the Devil embraced by mankind to keep us in a state of confusion thus obscuring our vision so that we are not able to grasp or comprehend the magnificent mysteries of creation because if we did understand them correctly, we would be creating clean energy based on centripetal principles that fit within the natural cycle of nature.  Ultimately, this shortcoming reveals two facts; the Evil One's preoccupation with inflicting death and suffering on manikind and our broken condition which inhibits us from enjoying more fully the benefits that God has gifted to us as His beloved children.

We Moderns Have Many Lessons To Learn From Nature

"Contemporary agriculture treats Mother-Earth like a whore and rapes her.  All year round it scrapes away her skin and poisons it with artificial fertilizer, for which we have to thank a science that has lost all connection with Nature"  Viktor Schauberger  

As we treat the earth, so we treat one another and any and every observation of nature and our interaction with it will reveal and enlighten for us what is really going on with mankind.  We moderns are so full of ourselves and what we think we know, yet the more knowledge we acquire, the dumber we become.  Our scientists are deranged fools, our physicists are truly lost in space, our college professors are talking heads with no brains and our theologians have received their doctorates from demons.  

Modernity and its seemingly great accomplishments is the greatest con ever perpetrated in the history of the world and it could only be pulled off by the greatest con in the history of the world.  He has always been the greatest con and will continue to be the greatest con until God Almighty casts him into the lake of fire reserved for him and his fallen angels. 

In the meantime he continues to dazzle and confound the masses by choosing unsuspecting men in high places through whom to work his magic.  These albeit innocent men believe with all their heart they are serving mankind, blazing new trails of enlightenment, bringing light to the masses when all they are doing is gathering the sheep for the great slaughter and this delusion will continue until it is too late to turn back and then he who they thought was the Great Shepard will cast off his disguise and in great derision will sound forth uproariously with howl of screeching laughter that will crush and destroy the spirit of every man in his presence.  

The moral of the story is that heresy has born nothing but death for our society and it has saturated every fibre of our being.  Our only hope is to repent and return to the way of the ancients, the way of our early apostolic church fathers, to the precious traditions of the church (not of men and there is a difference)  and to begin to embrace a right belief.  Repentance always has consequences and the loss of earthly goods and security is an absolute necessity if you are going  to gain entrance to the Kingdom of God.  Are you ready for that?


Heresy Trumps Abortion As The Worst Abomination

"...And be certain of this! There is no Christianity without iconography. Icons are not an addendum to the Orthodox faith. Icons are an integral and necessary expression of true belief in God and in the Gospel. Icons are the visible Word of God. The Holy Gospel has been proclaimed to man in God’s will by two means: in word (Holy Scripture) and in images (Holy Icons). We can no more dispense with Holy Icons and believe we have Christianity than we can dispense with the Bible. 

Icons proclaim and preserve the fundamental truth of the Gospel that God has become man. The presence of the Holy Icons in the churches is the pre-eminent sign of God’s new covenant with mankind, that the desire of Israel and of the nations has come to earth. It is no wonder that the Jews and the Muslims, incessant deniers of the Saving Incarnation of the Lord Jesus Christ, have always attacked our icons, and it is no wonder that iconoclasts in the church have been branded as Judaizers. To live without icons is to live in the Old Covenant, to live under the shadows of the law as though God has not permanently and irrevocably yoked Himself to creation and made Himself visible! This is why the hymnody for this Sunday of Orthodoxy says that iconoclasm is the “worst of all heresies…subverting the incarnation of our Savior”.

The Triumph of Orthodoxy: Like all of the precious aspects of the faith the Evil One despises the sacred icons. He despises them because they are the means by which his overthrow is proclaimed. He despises them because they lead men to the knowledge of the true God and proclaim in a loud and material voice the Gospel that God has become man, reconciling the world to Him. How he laments the day when the envoys of Prince Vladimir gazed upon the Sacred Iconography of Hagia Sophia, and found themselves unable to discern whether they were in heaven and on earth which led to the conversion of the Russian nation to Orthodoxy. Truly in this the words of St. John of Damascus, that great champion of icons, were fulfilled when he said, “If a pagan asks you to show him your faith, take him into church and place him before the icons” (On the Divine Images). 
The Evil One despises icons because they instruct the illiterate, and make the mysteries of Orthodoxy clear to all of the faithful. The Evil One despises icons because they assist the faithful so greatly in their quest for salvation, serving as a point of contact with the heavenly world, beckoning and calling all to strive for the divine life and the next world, giving birth to all sorts of devout emotions and inspiration, and actually sanctifying the faithful and healing the sick! For these reasons and more the Evil One stirred up a great tumult in the church for some 150 years, as he encouraged phony bishops, priests, monks and emperors to attack iconography and charge the venerators of icons with idolatry! Can you imagine?! The Church, which wiped idolatry from the face of the earth, is being charged with idolatry! It is this pernicious and soul-destroying heresy which was definitively overthrown when on the First Sunday of Lent in AD 843 the Empress Theodora and her pious son Michael re-established the icons for the last time in Hagia Sophia. Today we join that celebration and proclaim the victory of the Holy Icons!

Your Uncle Is A Liar

March 5th was a day to remember our brethren, the thirty-four venerable fathers of the Monastery of the Transfiguration at Valaam on Lake Ladoga who were massacred by a party of converts to Lutheranism who besieged the monastery and attempted to make the brethren renounce the Orthodox Faith. This kind of activity is standard operating procedure for the Romans and Protestants and as usual these events will never be recorded in revisionist history books.

Today, I also reminded of the tens of millions of our Russian Orthodox brothers and sisters who were slaughtered and starved to death in the first half of the 20th century. I lament the fact that our government along with many elite American citizens supported the Russian revolution that was in reality perpetrated to destroy the largest Orthodox Church in the world and of course, revisionist history hides this fact.

Today, I also remember our suffering brethren in the Orthodox country of Serbia which NATO forces bombarded relentlessly with dirty bombs (filled with nuclear waste) which will cause disease and sickness for many generations. American forces also wrote messages of Easter greetings on bombs which were purposely dropped on the holiest day of the year for Orthodox. This is what typically happens to countries that don't embrace American foreign policy. Again, you won't read about this in the history books.

He'll Be Coming Around The Corner When He Comes!

Listed below is a suggested strategy that could be used to establish a one world government system which will prepare us for the coming of the anti-Christ:
Eliminate the sovereignty of influential nations by melding their borders with surrounding countries.
Replace the currency of a country with a multi-national currency.
Centralize all power by controlling the food supply, health care and transportation system.
Place restrictions on the people using legislation to control all public dialog.
Bring conformity to the masses through government controlled education from the cradle to the grave.
Impoverish the people through debt load, heavy taxation, legislated theft and reallocation of property.
Weaken the masses with dead food, toxic water, pharmaceutical poisons and a polluted environment.
Remove all incentives for the citizens to seek an independent lifestyle.
Maintain control of the masses through a steady supply of propaganda through all media sources.
Take measures to minimize, marginalize and homogenize all Christian religious organizations to reduce their influence.
Take measures to maximize, protect and empower the state of Israel.

None are more hopelessly enslaved, as those who falsely believe they are free. - Alexis de Tocqueville

Cancer - A Sign Of The Times

Cancer has been so effective and unassailable because for more than one hundred years its actual cause has been camelflouged by medical science. The demons inciting the passions of greedy men within the medical establishment have enabled these corrupt and perverse men to effectively maintain that cancer is a mystery disease and so long as it remains a mystery disease the medical establishment will reap billions of dollars from unsuspecting, innocent, suffering human beings. A sick patient is worth much more to these men than a healthy patient. While a human being is not seen as sacred anymore, they are definitely seen as valuable. 

What is happening within the medical community is also occurring within every human institution in America and is rapidly spreading across the entire world. In biology, physics, food and nutrition, business, chemistry, engineering, history, religion, government and every other institution, it is the same story of deception, corruption and cover-ups all for the sake of greed. Money truly is the root of most evil and it is a grievous thought to consider that America has set a standard for the world and the world is following our lead into a depth of depravity as yet unknown in the history of mankind. The world is rapidly being prepared for the coming of the antichrist and America is at the vanguard preparing the way.

I have no doubt that most will read this and shake their heads in disbelief and consider that I have grossly and mistakenly over reacted, yet the truth will eventually be known and by then it will be too late for the damage will have already been done and that is something each of us will have to live with. I am only doing what God has put on my heart to do and that is to shine His light in a dark world to warn of the great deception that is upon us at the very moment and only increasing with each day that passes.

The antichrist will have the ability to deceive all mankind including many of God's elect. Yet, in saying this, our God has not left us without a voice crying in the wilderness, a watchman sounding the trumpet or the fool mocking the hard hearted and proud who could not recognize reality even if it were as an elephant lounging in their living room. The time will come when we will wish that the rocks of the mountains would fall on us for the suffering that is coming upon the entire world will be very great indeed. At least we can be comforted in knowing that the greater the suffering, the closer will be His coming. O Lord Jesus, come quickly.

The First Day Of Lent - A Holy And Solemn Day

The first day of Lent is a strict fast day which is one of the few days of the year in which Orthodox Christians are to refrain from all food. As we begin our forty day journey of repentance with fasting and good deeds, the church has wisely given us a selection of scripture passages to contemplate and prepare us for coming difficult yet rewarding days of self sacrifice. 

From one of these passages, our holy God, blessed teacher and friend, the Holy Spirit, speaks to us through Isaiah the great prophet with these powerful words: "Learn to do good; seek justice, rebuke the oppressor, defend the fatherless, plead for the widow". Isaiah 1:17

In this passage, the Holy Spirit gives us an injunction to learn to do good. Apparently 'doing good' is a practice not known unless we learn it. To learn it, we need someone to teach us, to show us, to instruct us in what it means to do good and the Holy Spirit being our friend and teacher is faithful to do so. He lays out for us in the following phrases what it means to do good. "Seek justice, rebuke the oppressor, defend the fatherless, plead for the widow". 

Our typical and logical response to these instructions is, "How do I promote justice, who do I rebuke and where is he, how do I defend and where are they and for whom do I plead and where is she?" We need not look very far to realize we are surrounded by injustice, oppression, attacks against the fatherless and widows being neglected. We need only open our eyes and look at what we read on our computers or in the newspaper or what we observe as we go about our day today and we will see it. The question will then be, "What are you going to do about it?"

Satan's Strategies

The most dangerous weapon in Satan's arsenal is his ability to marginalize his great powers using a number of different strategies. One simple strategy is to convince mankind that he doesn't exist and to infer that he does exist, invites ridicule and disdain. For those who are steadfast in their belief that he does indeed exist, he promotes the idea that his power is greatly marginalized because he is presently bound with chains somewhere in a celestial dungeon. To deal with the modern materialistic Christian who can't deny the presence of evil in the world and yet has trouble accepting the presence of invisible forces, the demon simply whispers in his ear, "Satan used to exist but now only evil concepts and dark principles remain which are embraced by ungodly men to feed their deranged, selfish and dark desires". 

Orthodox believers are taught to believe in the manifest presence of Satan and a multitude of demons who are actively working to deter all men everywhere from successfully embracing the holy trinitarian God; Father, Son and Holy Spirit and if the evil one can't keep a seeker from Chrismation and Baptism then the enemy will seek to undermine holiness and faith of the believer up until the moment of his last dying breath.

"Be sober, be vigilant; because your adversary the devil walks about like a roaring lion, seeking whom he may devour. Resist him, steadfast in the faith, knowing that the same sufferings are experienced by your brotherhood in the world. 1 Peter 5:8-9


The song birds are silent
The whales lie beached on the sands
The wooly beasts have left the plains

The waters no longer dance with light
The trees are infested and fallen
The treasures of the terrain have left their dwelling place
Desolate and barren, the earth falters

The heavens no longer reveal wonders
Breath bears death and confusion
Clouds have lost their glory
The spirit of earth has become defliled

Nature wallows and sways in her infirmities
Men of strength have overcome her
The flowers are crushed
All that was living has been trampled

Stars fall from the heavens
The moon no longer shines
The sun burns hot
Yet darkness overtakes us
What was, shall be no more

Shall the earth ever breath again?
Will darkness and death be the victor?
Who has directed darkness and death?
Who has been it's general?

Beauty has been plundered and raped?
How did this happen to my beloved?
Is revenge forthcoming?
Or will beauty be left to the worms?

How I long for the beginning and the past
Why has the flower faded?
Why does the grain bring death?
How is it that waters once so pristine and lively
have become bitter with poison?

Is this the work of the laborer?
And who is this laborer and where is his taskmaster?
And where is the king of this land?
Have we been cast off and abandoned?
Are we of no value and given up as dung?

I cry out into the darkness
Who hears me?
My voice is lost in the vastness of the unknown
My heart yearns for what has been lost

I have given myself over to the destroyer and in faithfulness
I have been destroyed.
My blood is split and my life is done

Yet, he who was in the beginning shall come again
In glorious light, he will shine upon the earth
The waters will be made clean
The animals will be brought back
The trees will be for the healing of mankind
And that which was dead shall live again.
And darkness shall forever be swallowed up
never to be known again.
